Full Effort is Full Victory

Full Effort is Full Victory

Full Effort is Full Victory

Well it’s finally here. Regionals are this weekend in Pomona at the Fairplex.

Our Regional Team is going into battle and representing our entire Community. We’ve trained every day with you all in mind.

I get the question a lot – how do you think the team is going to do? Are you ready for this that and the other?

The only thing we can control is our effort. You cannot control who your opponents are who the judges are or what the WOD’s are. Only effort.

Getting ready for this competition has forced me to think back to when I was training for the Olympics. I fought all the time some competitions went well others…not so much. Most confusing for me was there were tournaments that I won and wasn’t very happy with my performance. There were times I lost and I knew the effort I gave in the ring and in the training leading up to the competition was every ounce of me that I had to give.

It was strange to disconnect outside results with my inner satisfaction.

Then a really interesting thing happened – the more I focused on my effort and performance the more I won. I almost never thought about winning. Really. Sure my end game was to win but that tells you nothing about how to win and most importantly WHY you want to win. I wanted to win because that meant I gave more than anyone else and that I dug deeper than anyone else – and that is what winning meant for me at its deepest level.

I’m honored to go in to battle this weekend with 7 of our hardest working Volts and Vixens who are in search of the same thing.

Now it’s just time to throw down.

“Satisfaction does not come with achievement but with effort.

Full Effort is Full Victory.”

See you all in Pomona –
